Excellent and knowledgeable Kind and very compassionate
Dr. Guiterrez is not respectful of her patients’ time. One patient ahead of me had been in the office for 2 hours and then he was moved to a room where he waited for another 1/2 hour (total 2 1/2 hours). He wanted know how long before he can be seen, they told him soon. I had already waited 1 1/2 hours, so I was not going to wait any longer. The patient's time is just as valuable as the doctor's time. I have a choice in which doctors I see, so I no longer will be going to Dr. Guiterrez.

I wish I had gone to Dr. G first. So attentive to questions and very informed.

As an acne sufferer, I made an appointment with this doctor. I have NEVER been treated in such a condescending manner by a healthcare professional. I understand as a dermatologist, you must encourage and promote sun safety. At the time, I was training for a race, and in spite of efforts to wear sunscreen, I had quite a tan. She condescendingly questioned whether I was a painter or a construction worker that worked outside. Very rude and unprofessional. Work on your tact, Dr. Gutierrez.
Spent no time in the waiting room. But waited in the examination room for over an hour. Once she got there she spent about 2 seconds looking at my problem which had not improved and then complained about her computer being slow, then told me to come back in 3 months. I also had the expensive medicine problem. It was $125 with out insurance, $95 with and did absolutely nothing for me.

I would not recommend this doctor. She was treating my teens for acne and prescribed extremely expensive designer medications and discouraged the use of generics. In addition, she required every 2 month check ups before prescribing additional medication, at the cost of a $40 fee each time. I compared this with other dermatologists recommended by friends and their doctors simply give a year long prescription. Her instructions were confusing and we often left not being sure how to proceed.

The communication was terrible - and after I called to dispute the bills that added up to $500+ for getting a simple blood blister removed they said they would call me back to discuss. Instead of a phone call they sent me to a collection agency the following week. And on top of all of that...the blood blister looked exactly the same once it healed. Again, I called the doc and she told me it's not her concern if I'm happy with the procedure - she's only concerned that I pay my bill.
